|When I was a kid, my parents used to make me eat all my vegetables before I could leave the table. And while they obviously understood the important role vegetables played in my overall health, I don't think they realized that the food that never made it to my plate was just as important.|
It turns out that what we used to call "table scraps"—apple peels and cores, potato peelings, et cetera—are all loaded with powerful, health-promoting antioxidants.
The potential is enormous!
Pineapple stems are the source of bromelain, which helps with pain relief. Grape seed extract and resveratrol, both byproducts of wine production, are highly regarded for their ability to promote healthy cardiovascular health.
The olive is another food whose "leftovers" offer a great source of antioxidant protection. This is especially true when you consider its pulp.
The pulp that remains after the olive has been pressed has traditionally been discarded because the olive was typically pressed with the pit still in the fruit. This caused the pulp and other water byproducts to retain dangerous toxic chemicals.
However, in recent years, Dr. Roberto Crea of CreAgri developed a patented process that removes the olive pit before pressing, thus allowing us to benefit from the pulp that remains.
An easy way to get the life-enhancing benefits of olive pulp.
Olive pulp is full of polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidants that provide protection from free radicals. Hydroxytyrosol, the main polyphenol extracted from the olive pulp, scores highest in free-radical-scavenging activity per gram reported for natural compounds. In other words, it's the best, scoring 5-times higher than vitamin C when tested for its antioxidant power.
There's a patented form of hydroxytyrosol, called Hidrox, that's especially effective and is contained in the formula I want to tell you about today.
Introducing Organic Olive Extract
Organic Olive Extract is a single capsule that provides you with an easy way to get all of the antioxidants contained in olive pulp. In the Hidrox form , the benefits of this nutrient are incredible.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, Hidrox was found to be quite effective in treating joints. Participants in the study who were given a daily dose of 12 mg of hydroxytyrosol from Hidrox showed statistically significant improvements in their overall joint function. More specifically, they reported that everyday activities like getting dressed, walking, and gripping objects had become easier for them.
In addition to helping with joint discomfort, Hidrox also:
* Helps raise the body's antioxidant status for overall optimal health
* Helps reduce oxidative stress in the body
* Supports healthy blood vessels and overall cardiovascular health
* May protect the skin from free radicals associated with UV light
* May help reduce lipid peroxidation
Organic Olive Extract contains Hidrox in the same dosage used in the research.
